Why Crochet???

That’s a question I’ve asked myself many, many times. What is so engaging about looping and plunging yarn?

Knitting is, IMHO, a much more elegant pursuant. But knitting requires each hand to command a needle.  It’s much more tiring.  I guess I just like knitting’s country cousin.

What is going on here?  My God!  I’m breaking out in a sweat! did-practice-knitting-begin_2dc7fe742f55769c

My mom knitted beautifully.  I remember the circular needles, the short stabby needles (like in the pic). Sheesh. Markers and purposely dropped stitches. Took my breath away. I never got past “knit and purl”.

Oh, I have found, and ditched, very complex crochet patterns.  I must be able to crochet and watch TV. Or chat with Mr. Nelson (hubby). Or do both. This is imperative.

As a little girl I think I crocheted some wonky Barbie clothes. They were a perfect compliment to my wonky hand-sewn Barbie clothes.

Crochet is just a thing, that’s all.  It satisfies without demanding too much attention.
